Track and trace Learners results. What do SCORM compliance, AICC, XAPI and CMI5 mean?

Challenge to Learn

Do you want to buy a LMS or an authoring tool and are you wondering what the best option is for tracking the results of your learners? SCORM is a standard in e-Learning that makes it possible to track and trace the results of your learners in a Learning Management system (LMS).

Day 2 @LSCON, Nice keynote and I finally understand TinCan, Experience API, Scorm, ADL, IACC and CMI-5…….

Challenge to Learn

Later on the ADL was formed and they wanted a more extended standard, based on the AICC specs. So the ADL developed Scorm in a different (technical) way and we ended up with two standards. Both the ADL and AICC where working on a new generation of standards. ADL announced TinCan (version one will be out shortly) and the AICC worked on CMI-5. Day 2 of the conference. I started the day with the keynote session, before the keynote some announcements were made.

Project Tincan: What should SCORM 2.0 look like?: Participate!

Challenge to Learn

They do a project for the ADL to investigate what the next version of SCORM should look like. SCORM is the standard of the e-Learning industry and now and then we say less nice things about it, but it is our guarantee (most of the times) that content from our authoring systems will actually run in most LMS, and that the learners progress and results are tracked and reported. Today I was interviewed by Ben Clarck from Rustici software.

Choosing Mobile Learning Solutions Using Standards

JCA Solutions

With a wider variety of ways we could deliver learning experiences, combined with the desire to support and track performance, things had to change. That could lead to some SCORM tracking issues. Another alternative would be performance tracking or real time evaluation tool.

Traditional vendors are largely adopting at the SCORM parity level and using Tin Can as a better way to track formal training programs. Tracking should be opt-in when possible. The ADL vision is actually looking this far out in the future.

Real (e)Learning Heroes

Clark Quinn

The Department of Defense’s ADL initiative decided upon a version, to move things forward, and thus was born SCORM. And if not, there’s always the ADL to wield the ‘800 lb gorilla’ argument. This standard enables tracking and analytics beyond the course.

Part One: How We Decide to Do Work

Experience API

A couple of days ago, I wrote about the state of ADL and Rustici Software’s take on it. We wrapped a little bit of code and interface around our core product (SCORM Engine), labeled it SCORM Test Track, and shared it. ADL’s guiding hand. And to ADL, would you approve of that?

Why the Experience API (xAPI) Is Crucial to Your eLearning Success

Trivantis

The Experience API (xAPI) is an updated standard for tracking eLearning; it shows a more complete picture of your learners’ activity than SCORM does. Years later, when SCORM couldn’t do everything needed, the ADL asked Rustici Software to create an updated standard: The Experience API or xAPI.

What is the AICC Standard and How is it Relevant to My eLearning Plan?

Docebo

When the AICC disbanded, they transferred the CMI-5 project to the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative to ensure continued access to all of your training content. The AICC is dissolved, but having an LMS that supports AICC is still crucial.

xAPI: Why Should I Care and What Could It Do for Me?

In the training world, we were introduced to SCORM from an initiative that arose in 1999, led by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) and Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL). xAPI, like SCORM before it, started from a DoD and ADL 2011 initiative. In practical terms, this means it is easier to launch and track content. You can also determine what type of information you can track. With xAPI, you can track virtually anything.

Apart from that, it also helps to track learners’ performance to know the completion rate of your course content. On the other hand, SCORM certified LMS ensures that a specific product under discussion gets certified by SCORM governing body, ADL. Image by Arek Socha from Pixabay.

With the Tin Can API, all of these experiences can be tracked and accounted for. ADL commissioned Rustici Software to develop the specification, which looks to supplant SCORM as the go-to eLearning spec of the 2010′s…and then some. We can track more details than ever before.

Thinking Context in the Design Process

I was talking to the ADL Mobile folks about mobile design processes, and as usual I was going on about how mobile is not the sweet spot for courses (augmenting yes, full delivery no). For you too, or where am I going off track?

For specific user date on devices and more - you need to enable what they call "user tracking" -- although google terms don't allow you to send personal informaiton e.g You can give a unique token to each user and it will track those users (although not personal data). So you can track things like which device someone started a program on and if they moved to a tablet and then if they moved back…you can see resolution and pixel depth.

Day 5: xAPI and more – what next for SCORM?

On day one of our series, we learned that AICC (Aviation Industry Computer-Based-Training Committee) can be considered the first eLearning standard, used to track how learners progress through course content. Moving beyond those limitations, xAPI can track learning in almost any context.

What is xAPI?

LearnUpon

While the SCORM standard isn’t going anywhere soon, xAPI has redefined some of the fundamental practices of tracking learning experiences. The SCORM specification was introduced by ADL in 1999. The major difference between xAPI and SCORM content is the type of learning each can track.

The ongoing work of learning standards

Litmos

The Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) initiative of the Department of Defense finally had enough. The ADL provided compliance testing, so that content and systems could be validated for interoperability. The goal is to track a richer suite of information about behaviors.

A Glance Back at xAPI; A Look Ahead at Data Ownership

There’s a group hosted by ADL that is working towards this. Activity Providers could be a lot more transparent about what interactions they’re capable of tracking. The tl;dr : Like hardware, w hen it comes to data, if you can’t open it, you don’t own it.

Profile Recipes vs. xAPI Profiles

Experience API

The “profile”, as it relates to the Registry, was intended as an abstract concept that allowed a user to “request” a namespace, under which they could track the items in their information model, and specifically, where they could link one or more recipes. An “ xAPI profile ” is a newer concept, created by ADL in a more formal way through their BAA process. What’s the difference between profile recipes and xAPI profiles?

What is Tin Can?

eFront

ADL (the keepers of SCORM) is the steward of this new specification aka “the next generation of SCORM.”. Both SCORM and Tin Can API allow track completion; track time; track pass/fail; and report a single score. Providers have come to realize that learning experiences happen everywhere (not just in the LMS) and Tin Can adopters want to give their users the ability to easily track these experiences.
